What is Debridement?


Debridement is a natural process that occurs in all wounds and is crucial to healing.
However, damaged, dead or devitalized tissue hinders wound healing. Removal of
adherent, nonviable or contaminated tissue, debris (damaged, dead or devitalized tissue)
and bacteria from the wound, minimize infection risk and encourage healthy granulation
tissue formation and epithelialization, which promote wound healing. This can be done
through different methods of debridement such as:

1. Autolytic debridement,
2. Enzymatic debridement,
3. Surgical debridement with sharp instruments,
4. Mechanical debridement and
5. Biological debridement

Faster and more complete wound healing will be achieved with more frequent
debridement regardless of wound type, size, or duration.
